Blue and Beige Triangles

Another triangle quilt, though a slightly different design than the last two. This blue and beige print has been on my list of goals since 2016, so I've probably had it quite a bit longer than that. The blue arrow print was purchased right before our most recent move, but the other two blue prints have been in my stash awhile, as was the lightest of the beige prints. I finally made the decision to finish it up and purchased two beige prints, as well as solid beige and blue fabric, since my previous triangle quilts included solids. Originally, I planned a diagonal design, but, because the arrow print was a remnant, I didn't have enough fabric to do that and the solid beige fabric got eliminated in the redesign.

Once I finished the quilt top, I didn't have enough fabric to complete the back. I figured it would not be a problem to get a couple more yards of one of the two beige prints since I had just purchased them earlier this year. However, I was wrong, and I ended up purchasing a new beige print to finish the back. No surprise that I once again quilted it with a zigzag design.

Finishing this quilt means all my 2016 goals are officially complete!

Finished size: 53" x 70"
